"Wife House counsel." I guess he could use one but the post is simply about clumsy fingers.
House master's right to call witnesses: depends on the rules adopted for this procedure. They won't necessarily be the same as those adopted for the Clinton case.

Would they have to appear? The White House claims some sort of executive privilege against even an appearance by those people. How would impeachment trial rules change that?

First Lady is acting as Trump lawyer? More nepotism.

More open Republican corruption, this time from Moscow Mitch. He openly admits that the fix is in on impeachment and that Trump is calling the shots. As I keep saying they aren't even pretending to be anything other than an authoritarian monolith that cares for nothing other than partisan power.

The Senate isn't the President's lawyer; it's the trial body. McConnell wants a short trial...maybe that's the real message. They aren't going to be calling Bolton, Pompeo and the rest of the crew in a short trial.

Trump may skip the debates. It's probably a good strategy though it's fascinating (in a grisly sort of way) that we could have a presidential election where the incumbent doesn't even get up and defend their own policies (which he has few of when you think about it). He's better at just expounding (i.e. lying) about them.

No presidential primaries in some states; no national debates before the general election...robs the average voter of information about candidates and the ability to vote in a particular election.
